We do not know if this is the proper title but it is a scene from Charlie Chaplin that he is trying to save some people out of the water. Very funny because a lot of things goes wrong. We have put some music from begin 30's under de scene so it is not so quiet. But maybe somebody knows the original title; please let us know. We think it is an Italian version; in the beginning of the film we can read the text:

Le comiche di Charlot
Charlie Chaplin Comics

Subject: This is from 'The Adventurer'.
'Charlie Chaplin as a lifeguard' is actually part of his final two reeler for the Mutual Company entitled 'The Adventurer'. It was released on October 23, 1917.

This was the last of what is considered to be Chaplin's finest series of two reelers. He made a dozen for Mutual between 1916 & 1917.

Besides Chaplin 'regulars' Edna Purviance, Eric Campbell & Henry Bergman we also see Toraichi Kono in a bit part. He was Chaplin's chauffeur.

Subject: from "The Adventurer" from 1917
this clip is from the chaplin short titled "The Adventurer" in which the tramp escapes from jail, swims out to sea when chased by the cops, and rescues 2 drowning victims. the grateful party invites the tramp to their mansion/party, and the rest of his time is split between wooing edna purviance and eluding the police. a great flik!
